Comex, developer of the revolutionary JailbreakMe 3.0 tool for iOS 4, has just announced via Twitter that he will soon be interning at Google, just six months after ending his employment with Apple. Some felt the motives behind Apple's hiring of Comex, real name Nicholas Allegra, were to essentially suppress his powers and prevent him from actively jailbreaking, but with Google now on the scene, hopefully he can get back to doing what he does best.
